wool week day 3

Just one class today, but it was a good een! A whole day of lace with Gudrun Johnston

Gudrun had the group making a mini shawl, such a good idea to try out different techniques but achieve something tangible from the day. We made sure the group left with enough wool and the pattern for Gudruns latest pattern for us: Loren

everyone knitting away.

Then tonight we had an evening of chatting about lace. Local lace legend Mary Kay was there, Gudrun talked about her lace knitting and the lovely Monique Boonstra spoke about her lace making including the stole she recreated from half a photo in the Shetland Museum Photo archives!!

 I cant believe its Wednesday already. More pictures tomorrow!
